Jathon Delsy: “For Real” – always pushing the envelope!

What strikes most first, about  Jathon Delsy – a musician based in London, England, who composes, arranges, performs and produces his own music – is what a colorful persona he projects in an extremely dull musical era. And I mean that, in every sense of the word ‘colorful’. Jathon Delsy is the epitome of any and everything contrasting thoughts or actions that are conventional, stereotyped, orthodox, or negatively tralatitious in nature. Jathon Delsy is the person you may have become if you had the courage to repudiate society’s restrictive and hallucinatory morals, rules and regulations derived from way before the


Interview with hardcore drummer – Lucky Lehrer

Lucky Lehrer’s foray into the politics of marijuana was in 1974 working in Washington, D.C., for a freshman Congressman on Capitol Hill. Writing on the front page of the student newspaper at the University of California, Lehrer observed “the nation’s policy on cannabis appears inconsistent and ill advised.” Back then, the issue involved the defoliant Paraquat being sprayed to eradicate foreign plants making their way into the lungs of America, Lehrer reported. Today’s battle is to support California’s Prop 64, which seeks to legalize the recreational use of marijuana. “I am hosting a celebration of the music of Mary Jane

Toya Nash: “Him…” Edgy, Raw and Impassioned

Toya Nash is a classically trained mezzo-Soprano, and holds a Master of Fine Arts degree from the prestigious Actors Studio Drama School in Manhattan. She is also an accomplished actress of both stage and screen and can be seen in the feature, Trapped.

Toya also founded The LANA Company, her own line of natural bath and body products, as well as being the founder of Coach Your Craft, a coaching company for voice and acting. Toya is a strong believer in giving back, and often sponsors children and teens by offering free voice and acting workshops through Coach Your Craft.

Toya Nash has just released her debut EP, Him…, and she is currently performing at various venues throughout the US.

Toya has one heck of a voice and the kind of secure yet relaxed performance style which carries the Ep through with convincing, energetic and charismatic flair. She puts so much feeling and meaning into every track, you’ll feel the words hit your chest. The passion she delivers, makes you to feel how good this music is.

The Ep has a sound all of its own. It achieves a superb balance between professional production and understated clean minimalistic sound. It’s clear, crisp and uncluttered, and the compositions are strong enough to stand proud against some of the classics of this genre. The acoustic guitar and bass riffs will probably cause a few jaws to drop too, as they are just sublime in places. Toya’s sound is rugged R&B, dipped into heartrending soul, and all spiced up with a sprinkling of pop and rock.

My absolute favorites, “No Pressure” and “Let Me In,” are edgy, raw and impassioned. This is exactly where I think Toya should be. Her handling of slowly calibrated laments, is really overwhelming. This is the sound of a gifted artist who has created an extremely accomplished piece of art.

I could use dozens of superlatives but nothing could properly express my joy over the songs on this Ep, which are both organic sounding yet very sophisticated. So what’s so good about it? Well… everything really, but most of all Toya’s voice, which goes from soft and pure, to intense and confident. Sometimes in the same song.

She sounds so authentic, so real, and so unique, while the music creates stunning backdrops for her vocal deliveries, whether languid like “No Pressure,” or upbeat and groovy on “Nobody Like You.” The songs arouse all kinds of emotions from the beginning to the end, it takes you on a musical journey that will desperately leave you wanting more.

“Him…” sums up Toya Nash’s considerable talents. She has a fantastic voice, full of emotion, and is able to relate complex feelings in a simple form. This is the mark of a true vocal artist.

Hopefully next time around, Toya will deliver us a full length album, to bathe our ears in, as the four-tracks on this Ep is just a wicked teaser!
